About This Guide

While net population changes result from the interplay of birth rates, death rates, and the effects of migration, these elements depend on a wide range of social, economic, and environmental factors. These include marriage and childbearing patterns, employment opportunities, industrialization, health services, education, religion, the participation of women in the work force, and the types and prevalence of family planning.
